16th UBER ride

July 11 evening:
UBER TypeUBERX
Car Model: Toyota Innova (Silver)
Rating: 5 stars
Driver: Owner
Notes: I was surprised Innova was on the roster of UBERX, seriously, this car can accommodate a lot of people. The conversation was the reason for 5 stars. I just can't remember where the conversation started and ended, it's friday hence i am excused to forget things haha.

15th UBER PH ride

July 10 morning:
UBER TypeUBERX
Car Model: Mitsubishi Adventure (Green)
Rating: 4 stars
Driver: Owner
Notes: Driver was already with UBER for 7 months.. wow, this has got to be the longest record among those i have ridden. Which reminds me, this is my f'in 15th ride, holiness.
Well, i rated 4 stars for asking directions from start to finish, and for picking me up in the wrong location haha.
It was during this ride that i learned and get to compare about Grab taxi's Grab Car feature, it's fixed rate but more expensive than UBERX, but i learned it has a promo right now, by using LEGALLYGRAB code, where you get 100 pesos off every ride, made me think, is it possible to cut the ride into chunks of 2 kms so that everything is free?


14th UBER PH ride

July 9 evening:
UBER TypeUBERX
Car Model: Toyota Vios (White)
Rating: 5 stars
Driver: Owner
Notes: Very professional, but taking note of how the driver proposes that if i wanted to ride UBER again, feel free to call him up, i'm not really sure of this setup but it might be useful if there's no other available UBERs around.

13th UBER PH ride

July 9 morning:
UBER TypeUBER Black
Car Model: Toyota Fortuner (Silver)
Rating: 4 stars
Driver: Owner
Notes: Car was a year old but still well maintained, driver was not really conversing much so the ride was a little bit silent. He seems very much aware of the routes so no problem in there. UBER is draining my pockets so i will take a short hiatus of using UBER black haha, it was fun! :)

12th UBER PH ride

July 8 evening:
UBER TypeUBER Black
Car Model: Mitsubishi Montero Sport (Gray)
Rating: 5 stars
Driver: Owner
Notes: Great conversation regarding Mitsubishi Montero, the car was great and brand new. There was virtually no waiting time for the car to get to the pickup point, which caused a mild panic on my part haha because i have booked the car ahead of arriving at the pickup point.

11th UBER PH ride

July 8 morning:
UBER Type: UBER Black
Car Model: Hyundai Tucson (White)
Rating: 5 stars
Driver: Owner
Notes: It was another stormy day with heavy traffic. The car was not really brand new, but it was well maintained. I'm getting fond of getting UBER black car during rainy days to have an assurance that gutter-deep flood will not be a problem. It was the driver's first week on the job and is quite lost in how to use GPS but overall, we were able to avoid traffic and I got off completely dry. 5 stars for asking me which radio station to tune in. :)

10th UBER PH ride

July 7 evening:
UBER Type: UberX
Car Model: Toyota Vios (Red)
Rating: 5 stars
Driver: Owner
Notes: My first surge pricing ride (1.2X factor only though), waited for so long until decided to book one because of the crazy surge in price. So it was one of those comfortable rides where you indeed feel that you have a personal driver.
